    Your trap speeds are high for those times... what's the elevation there? 0?

    i dunno 500' - 800' i think

    i don't have to shift outta 3rd..

    need to get my launch down better and switch to a wider tire.. the 195s dont give enough grip..

    I think if I get an better flowingn exhaust and CAI I can hit 14.7 or so

    I wouldn't doubt it, you should be nearing 14.9s as it is.
    You'll get it all worked out ;)

    wider != more traction :)

    there's an article on this some where.... grip 101 or some shit.

    basically, traction deals more with contact patch, front to back, and thus is a function of weight and tire psi and overall diameter of the tire.

    wider = better lateral/conering grip.

    but yeah, 2.3's are pretty bad. you should be able to pull a 2.1 on street tires
